Keeping your installation of Magento up to date allows you to remain protected against security vulnerabilities, fixes bugs, and major upgrades also add new features and functionality. The current versions of Magento is 188.8.131.52 (check what version you are currently running). We can do the upgrade for you following the proper upgrade procedure. We will also upgrade any out of date extensions that are installed.
If your Magento installation has already been hacked upgrading, it will not clean it up. In that situation we can clean up the hack and then upgrade it.
We have extensive experience dealing with the many issues that can occur during the upgrade process, especially the issues which occur due to the changes made from Magento 1.3.x to 1.4.x. For upgrades from one major version to another (e.g. 1.8.x to 1.9.x) we will perform a test of the upgrade in a directory on your website first, so that you can test out the upgrade before we apply the upgrade to the live website.
Once we start the upgrade process we will apply the security patches for prior versions of Magento, so that you don't have to wait until the upgrade is finished to be protected against those vulnerabilities.
If you just want to make your existing installation compatible with PHP 5.4 we can install the PHP 5.4 patches for that if you are running Magento 184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11.
We can usually upgrade your Magento installation in a week.
